Clemson freshman Rooks to miss basketball season

Posted: Updated:

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson freshman guard Patrick Rooks will miss the upcoming basketball season after injuring his hip during preseason workouts.

Tigers coach Brad Brownell announced Rooks' status Friday. Clemson is opening basketball practice on Sunday.

Rooks, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard from Charlotte, N.C., played for the Tigers on their trip to Italy last month. Brownell says Rooks will need surgery and the recovery time will keep him from playing this season.

Brownell says Rooks shot the ball well on the team's European trip and would've helped Clemson's three-point shooting. The Tigers, though, have depth in the backcourt with four guards who played last year. They will get Devin Coleman back in the lineup after his season-long injury.
